Explore the impressive landscapes and amazing panoramas on a hiking trip to São Miguel. Bathe in the natural pools in the stunning Lagoon of Lagoa do Fogo. Start your trail on a short dirt road, from where you will reach a small stream (about 2 km), reaching another relatively more open area, with several springs and wide declivities, that will lead you to Lagoa do Fogo. Bathe in the Natural Pools of Lagoa / Caloura, in the cozy Thermal Baths of Caldeira Velha, or in the Grandiose Waterfall of Salto do Cabrito. Get stunning panoramic views of Lago do Fogo (on one side) and the north coast of the island of Sao Miguel (on the other) while traveling along “Cumeeira Norte”. Pass through several small streams surrounded by incredibly green and untouched forests, before reaching the characteristic pumice-stone beach of the lagoon. Enjoy a pleasant picnic lunch of regional products. Return ...

Join this guided journey along the Algarve coastline to Benagil Cave. This fun and fantastic adventure will fully immerse you in the natural beauty of Portugal. From the pier of Clube Naval de Portimão, begin your boat ride along the coastline, admiring its churches, castles, and beautiful caves. As you glide over the water, your guide will tell you sometimes spooky ancient stories and teach you about the history of the Arade River. All boats are equipped with VHF Radios synchronized with dolphin-watching vessels. If these breathtaking animals are spotted within a 3-mile radius, the boat will go to their location. Take in the unbelievable beauty of Benagil Cave, with its naturally formed hole at the top that lets the sunlight filter down to the sandy beach below. Listen to the echoes of the wind and let yourself be calmed by your surroundings.

Very nice guides and a very personal tour, no mass tourism clearance. A lot was said about the caves and there were many free bathing beach recommendations. A refreshing excursion, especially on hot days.
I had the best guide for the trekking, it was a spectacular experience and I would like to be able to repeat it. It is a beautiful circular route, with the most beautiful end, Lagoa do Fogo.
Everything spectacular from the guide explaining everything very well, the captain super skillful and confident, the breathtaking landscapes, all the caves have a natural beauty
Magnificent views, detailed explanations and a friendly guide who cares for travelers. I highly recommend
The alternatives in the hiking trails that they do are beautiful.
